For most fleets racing today, the courses were very shifty and tricky, but the match racers got a great surprise. After a very long postponement, we were moved out of the river to sail in steadier winds. And steadier they were! relative to the inner harbor course on which we have been racing for the last week and a half. With the wind having more of a runway, the race committee could keep up with the 20-30 degree shifts over the normal-sized race course, and were able to get the races off very quickly. We were up against Team Souter, AUS, in today's quarterfinals and came out on top winning the series 3-0.
We are looking forward to racing again tomorrow. We are again on a different course, but one that is outside of the river.
